Thinking About Robbie Greenberger

I spent much of my day thinking of Robbie Greenberger, and the loss suffered by his family. I can't imagine what they're going through.

Mom once told me that the worst thing in the world was when a parent had to bury a child. I wish I still had Mom around to talk to her about this horrible tragedy.

Bob Greenberger has posted on his blog about Robbie's final days, in his post The Final Week. Robbie was surrounded by friends and family when he passed.

The family is receiving friends on Sunday, and Nomi and I have to decide if we're going to be able to go see them. It's a three-hour drive, there and back, and I want to be there for them, but I don't know if we can go. I feel so helpless.

The family has said that in lieu of flowers, contributions in Robbie’s memory may be made to The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer, Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital, 20 York Street, New Haven, CT 06511-3202 ( We plan to make a donation in Robbie's memory.
